Today, hundreds of Catholic leaders will gather in Washington, D.C., for a Catholic Day of Action for Dreamers to demand a clean Dream Act. Many are planning to get arrested for nonviolent civil disobedience, including Jesuit Fr. Tom Reese. NCR contributor Julie Bourbon will be covering the event for NCR.
This week, we celebrate the first anniversary of the launch of our podcast, NCR in Conversation. Catch the latest episode here.
